By focusing on race above and beyond all else, Progressives have created an army of zealots loced out with race tinted glasses that classify everyone and anyone as a collective member of an oppressed or oppressive group. They have become the Scientologists of the Left.
Pathological Altruism has caused many in Western countries to applaud their own impending doom. By taking altruism to its furthest extreme, Westerners have begun a process that will ensure that they are to be a permanent class of workers who are taxed in order to feed, clothe, and house and demographic that lives on the public dole in some places at rates as high as 90%. What does the West get from displacing themselves and ensuring a hard life for their children? Apparently, they get to pat themselves on the back for being nice to those that will take advantage of their every kindness and weakness.
Part II: The Samnites were herdsmen and warriors who lived in the Apennine Mountains east of Latium. For several hundred years, they positioned themselves as formidable rivals to Rome when that city's power was on the upswing. Theirs is a history of stubbornness and tragedy in equal measures.

Privilege has become a way for the religion of social justice to attack people on the basis that their very existence is an afront to decency.

There are traits common to the most successful groups in America that translate to anyone no matter their background. Go by this basic lifeplan and success is likely to follow.
Career politicians on the national level often end up profiting from their positions by means that are legal, illegal, and ethically questionable. They make their money in ways that will leave concerned citizens sick to their stomachs.
For only a few hundred thousand dollars, you too could own a share in Clinton's soul. That's the cost of recieving representation. If you cannot afford to generously donate that amount, you will not be represented by her. Clinton is the tip of the iceberg in terms of state corruption. She is the sloppiest, least scrupulous, corrupt official we have and we should thank her for providing an easy to follow guideline for how a person can make millions of dollars by using her position in the government to dole out favors and conducting diplomacy in the favor of her "customers". We have learned, however, that she couldn't have done it alone.
The regressive ideals of the religion of Social Justice have sought to turn the clocks back over a hundred years to a time of suffocatingly boring and endlessly polite social interaction.
